A friend of mine posted this link, 50 signs you’re addicted to reading, on my facebook wall – basically summing up .. well.. me! I really wanted to share this with you. 🙂
I have picked out a top 15 for me as not all of them apply to me… but I also gained some tips out of this post – including ziplocking your Kindle, why haven’t I thought about that before? I probably could make a top 40 – but I want to try to keep it short and simple hehe.
Well here comes my top 15:
1 – You’re supertired at work because you stayed up way too late reading just one more chapter, and then another.
2 – You get more than a little defensive of your favorite authors.
3 – You know the book will be better than the movie before it’s out.
4 – You’ve read more books than seen movies in the last month.
5 – You’ve sunk into a state of depression after finishing a really good book (also called a “book hangover”).
6 – You’ve made your love of reading permanent. (Yes that’s my own arm and my tattoo ^_^)
7 – You always have at least two books ready to read once you finish one.
8 – Almost every day you think at one point “I’d rather be reading.”
9 – You start to ration your reading when a book you love nears the end.
10 – When the ending of a book is bad, you take it really personally.
11 – Sometimes you sound like a broken record trying to convince your friends to read your favourite book.
12 – You’ve definitely fallen in love with characters in a book before.
13 – You have multiple editions and versions of your favorite books.
14 – You ALWAYS have a book on you . . . just in case. – Or in my case my Kindle is always with me
15 – You’ve yelled at loved ones for bothering you while you were reading.
There are definitely a few more that apply to me – but I think these 15 sums it up for me haha!
Are there any signs you fall in with reading as a passion? Let me know!
